High temps, mostly sunny skies for Memorial Day weekend in metro Detroit

·1 min read

Metro Detroiters can look forward to enjoying the long weekend with high temperatures and mostly sunny skies.

"On Memorial Day itself, we are expecting temperatures to be in the upper 80s, even some places exceeding 90 degrees," said Megan Varcie, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in White Lake.

Temperatures will hike up over the weekend. Tuesday could exceed 90 degrees, Varcie said. Later in the week, however, there's a chance for showers and thunderstorms.

Saturday evening, there is an isolated chance of rainfall north of M-59 — areas including Flint and Saginaw — but for the most part, it's "going to be dry with warm temperatures," Varcie said.

Temperatures are "certainly above normal for this time of year," she said.

Detroit hit a record high of 95 degrees on Memorial Day 2012.
